Xiaomi Mi 10 Youth Editions | Detailed Review | Performance & Comparison|

Just like Apple ’s iPhone SE, the Xiaomi brand Youth Edition models also belong to the product line that is updated from time to time. It is a unique machine among the Xiaomi brands. The last time Xiaomi launched the Mi 8 Youth Edition was in 2018. Xiaomi Mi 10 Youth Edition is the first Xiaomi model equipped with a periscope camera module with 50x zoom.

Xiaomi launched three youth models so far since its founding in 2010

Therefore, counting on this work, since its founding in 2010, Xiaomi has released a total of three youth models.

At the same time, Youth Edition is also a concept first developed by Xiaomi. After it became popular, most models with the same name are based on the same flagship characteristics, such as appearance or image capabilities, and performance has not become weak. Based on the relatively cheap price, with the help of the reputation of its own flagship, some results can be obtained.

Xiaomi Mi 10 Youth Edition differs from all “youth” models. This is the first Xiaomi model equipped with a periscope camera module with 50x zoom.

In accordance with the laws of physics, it is difficult for smartphones to install longer zoom lenses in their thin bodies. Even if mobile phone manufacturers use smaller image sensors and original lens designs than conventional, traditional high-end smartphones. Mobile phones can only achieve 2x or 3x optical zoom.

Therefore, in the case of balancing a slim body, it is the only way to achieve high-power zoom and change the lens structure. The design principle of the periscope lens is similar to the periscope in the submarine, which increases the zoom distance through the reflection of the optical path.

Simply put, the CMOS image sensor is placed vertically in the phone, and the lens is aligned along the optical axis parallel to the body, and then a mirror is used to reflect the light entering the camera onto the lens and image sensor. Thus, you can create a longer equivalent focal length than the installation direction of a traditional camera (that is, towards the outside of the phone).

Adding a telephoto lens with a periscope Xiaomi Mi 10 Youth Edition will significantly improve the ability of a mobile phone to take pictures in a telephoto lens and is expected to provide lossless image quality with powerful optical zoom. At the same time, 50x digital zoom will additionally look at a mobile phone. This work, obviously, is a “dessert grade” product released by Xiaomi for young people. The colourful look is good enough to look fashionable. At the same time, it is expected to be further than the flagship in the ability to take pictures.
